AR Rahman on his 52nd Birthday: I Feel the Desire to Give Back
AR Rahman feels the “desire” to give back and nurture “some of the younger generations”.
Grammy and Academy Award-winning musician A.R. Rahman has racked up an impressive list of accomplishments. Now, the music maestro, who turned 52 on Sunday, feels the “desire” to give back and nurture “some of the younger generations”. I8
Rahman has delivered multiple chartbusters in Hindi, Tamil, Telugu, English and Persian films. The founder of the KM Music Conservatory hasn’t restricted himself to just music. The “Urvasi Urvasi” hitmaker also got into the director’s chair for “Le Musk”, among other things.
Asked if he would like to achieve more, Rahman told IANS in an exclusive interview: “I feel the desire to give back, nurturing some of the younger generations and also spend time learning and refining many things I don’t know.”
Last year, he was also busy hunting for “India’s most authentic voice” on his digital show “ARRived”. After judging “ARRived”, he will be soon seen as a coach of “The Voice India”. It seems like he has grown fond of singing-based reality shows.
“I like some of them. It’s really beautiful to see the new generation of Indian talent. It gives me inspiration to write new things,” he said in the email interview.
Talking about his 52nd birthday, he shared: “Just spend time with family and friends. It’s also my son A.R Ameen’s birthday.”
He has a treat for his fans as well. His song, “Kabir”, for the forthcoming film “The Fakir of Venice” will be unveiled on Sunday.
“The lyrics are from a poem of Saint Kabir. It’s about the journey of a Fakir and the dichotomy of things with the character,” said Rahman.
